Nice thread idea, and a good reminder that I really need to try to take more pictures while climbing instead of just during the aproach/deproach.

Anyways, here are my few recent and humble entries.

Judging by the background, Fisher Towers?
I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

Good eye! The first two are indeed the Fishers! A sharp eye will see our car in the 3rd one.

Evolve - Where is the first one of yours? Very cool.

Here is another Colorado classic...

Somewhere in Boulder Canyon...


Image
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where no one intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more......
